Snake Plant (Sansevieria)

The snake plant is actually a succulent. It has long been popular probably because of its great tolerance to adverse conditions.

It also called mother-in-law tongue and bowstring. Leaves of the snake plant contain bundles of fibers that provide strength to these elongated organs.

Leaf tissue has successfully been used as an explants source in many other herbaceous materials. Sanseviera’s thick, sword-shaped, usually upright leaves grow to 18 inches or more in height, but in some varieties hug the ground. It is propagated easily by division of the rootstock or by taking a leaf cutting.

The simplest way to start a new snake plants is to divide a plant. And it’s the only way to maintain the marginal light green stripe of variegation types. Plants started from cuttings lose this variegation.
